Can anyone supply me with the length, width, and thickness of both seat bottom springs and back rest springs. for a late 1927 coupe? Might have a set lined up but they appear to be from a model A. Thanks in advance. Harv
Call Snyders,and ask them for measurements.They are usually very helpful.
This is a '26 coupe bottom seat frame. It should be the same as the '27.
You should be able to take the measurements off the seat riser. The original was 3/4" thick, I made this frame 5/4" because the owner wanted to sit a bit higher.
Harvey, I have a set of seat cushions from my grandfather's 27 coupe. They are currently upholstered in black naugahyde with three inch wide pleats similar to what the open cars had. Also included are the door panels, also done in black naugahyde. The springs are original. the wood on them is not. They would be good for a driver or rat rod, or take the naugahyde off and reupholster them in the correct cloth. Contact me if interested.
This is the original bottom seat frame. I don't have the back frame.
I can tell you that there are 9 springs across the platform, and 4 rows front to back. They are linked to each other and to top and bottom wire frames. The bottom wire frame is the same shape as the wood frame, but about 0.5" in from each edge.
The top frame comes further forward. I doubt you can replicate this without a pattern or a proper seat cover. My seats have pockets about 4" wide.
Terry, I have sent you a PM. Harv
